Fun­nel vi­sion on duo’s deadly mis­sion

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SATURDAY EXTRA -

tele­vi­sion favourites and Bushwacked! hosts Bran­don Walters and Kayne Tremills face their creepi­est, crawli­est mis­sion yet as they set off on a new ad­ven­ture into south­east Queens­land’s Lam­ing­ton Na­tional Park in an episode that airs this week­end. The pair (pic­tured) have a mis­sion – to track down one of the world’s most deadly spi­ders, a north­ern tree-dwelling fun­nel-web. Along the way they meet Pro­fes­sor Glenn King, bio­chemist at the Univer­sity of Queens­land, who shows the boys how to milk a south­ern tree-dwelling fun­nel-web spi­der – the dead­li­est arach­nid in the world. They also meet Dou­glas James from the lo­cal Yugam­beh peo­ple, who shares his knowl­edge of bush tucker and per­forms tra­di­tional in­dige­nous dance. Bush­whacked! is a 13-part se­ries that sends the pair on some weird, whacky and some­times deadly wildlife mis­sions chas­ing killer sharks, ven­omous snakes, friendly pen­guins and lov­able tur­tles.
